Drinking On The Sly with HBO’s Boardwalk Empire

Boardwalk Empire crowd.jpgPassword, please?

Last night, HBO partied 1920’s prohibition-style, with lots and lots of (legal!) booze, at an invite-only fête for this fall’s much-anticipated drama, Boardwalk Empire.

Guests could only gain entrance by uttering a secret password. Once inside, they got a sneak peek at the premiere episode. The event also kicked off a month-long speakeasy campaign to spread the word about the show. Similar password-protected events will be held all around the city, as well as in Chicago, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles, and you don’t need a press pass to score a pour. (You can get the hooch hookup here.)

Check out more event pics after the jump.

Guests were able to take their own 1920’s style mugshots. Below is our very own Kiran Aditham of AgencySpy.
